91 or 93 pump gas with water/methanol. Been keeping it fat at wot. I feel like the biggest thing that helped it was the converter. It's tight now. It'll lug like a manual sometimes. It was so different that I had to turn the mixture screws out and turn the idle up a little. Really happy with how it's performing finally.

Default Upgrades

I pulled the trigger and started the EFI conversion. Since the TB is shorter I wanted to try and get the charge pipe shorter. I had it running to the back of the carb and turning 170 degrees to get it to fit under my shaker. Now have it running off the front of the TB. It still took a few days work to get the interior bore to stay the same size but make the bends I needed so that the shaker will still fit. Charge pipe is almost 2 feet shorter now.

Tomorrow I will work on wiring.

Just like JSPont I am waiting on my transmission to be finished. He said maybe next week.

Then to re-do every aspect of my tuning.
